Tasmanians feature heavily among the nominees for Athletics Australia's annual awards.
Set to celebrate the achievements of 2019, the awards will be held online next week, hosted by Olympic silver medallist John Steffenson.
Athletics Australia has been announcing nominees daily with the major individual categories yet to come.
Newstead Athletics' Gary Armstrong has been nominated for the junior athlete coach of the year.
In an exceptional year, Armstrong guided Sam Clifford to a new national under-18 record and world under-20 qualifier in the 5000m.
Armstrong was nominated alongside Victorian Chloe Edwards, Penny Gillies (NSW) and Des Proctor (ACT).
Two of the nine nominees for official of the year came from Tasmania.
The nomination for Launceston's Sandra Speers said she "makes a diverse contribution to athletics in administration and coaching as well as officiating".
In 2019 Speers was invited to attend the world athletics starters' seminar and inducted onto the Tasmanian Women's honour roll for her service to the sport.
Hobart's Rosemary Coleman was also nominated for her myriad roles in athletics as a coach, technical official and administrator.
Coleman officiates in diverse roles including call room, photo finish and as a high-level race walking judge at all levels from interclub to Oceania championships.
The four nominees for the able-bodied athlete coach of the year included former Tasmanian Institute of Sport coach Peter Fortune, who now coaches a Victorian stable including Catriona Bisset and Anneliese Rubie-Renshaw, and Melbourne-based coaching guru Nic Bideau whose many charges include King Island's Stewart McSweyn.
Canberra-based Philo Saunders, who is among the nominees for para athlete coach of the year, coaches Forth middle distance world champion Dion Kenzie as well as Launceston's Rio Olympian Milly Clark.
Several of the individual categories are yet to have nominees named with Clifford a strong chance to be included in the junior male athlete of the year when the finalists are announced on Wednesday.
Clubmate Abbie Butler could be among nominees for the junior female award while McSweyn and Clark would be candidates for the senior award categories.
The award winners will be announced via Athletics Australia's Facebook and YouTube channels on Wednesday, June 10, from 7.30pm.
